Enhance your qigong practice or discover qi (life force) anew through a unique collection of simple yet profound stillness and movement exercises from the ancient healing and enlightenment practices of qigong.
Kindle the fire of your inner smile, align yourself between heaven and earth, and find the extraordinary in the ordinary. As streams gather to form a river or waterfall, so too is Waterfall Qigong a joining of several lineages and teaching styles. Steven Michael Pague, a founding staff member of Omega and lifelong student and practitioner of qigong, weaves these elements into an accessible presentation with easy-to-learn forms and practices. Garner and take home what you will need to build, or add to, a practice of your own.
Qigong is an optimal method for maintaining and strengthening the body, organs, and systems, as well as establishing and supporting a peaceful, mindful attitude.
This workshop is suitable for both experienced practitioners or beginners. Most of the forms and meditations can be done either standing, seated, or lying down.
The above schedule is subject to change at the discretion of the faculty.
